In the last few days i found some time to work on the typeX-press Filebrowser again. I made a standalone version of the filebrowser. It still has the full usermanagment and all the other features except the file editing feature. I fixed o lot of bugs and added some useful features like “download folder as …
it seems that relinux needs a major rework to function properly on 12.04 ( afaik the team knows about this and is already working) for relinux “iso” to work i had to write the following lines into a terminal first: sudo bash WORKDIR=/home/relinux rm -rfÂ $WORKDIR mkdir -p $WORKDIR/ISOTMP/casper mkdir -p $WORKDIR/ISOTMP/preseed mkdir -p $WORKDIR/dummysys/dev …
This is just a little bit of unity in kde but since kde is configurable to the max you may choose the level of similarity on your own… Â There even is “takeoff” launcher, krunner and a HUD – like plugin in development. (And a bunch of other useful widgets for yourÂ enjoymentÂ )
I still don’t understand why canonical is using gnome as their base instead of kde.. Â here is just an other video that shows off kde’s capabilities to mimic unity right out of the box. (but rockstable 😉 )

long story short: DO NOT use the persistent file! Â set up an explicit partition formatted with ext4,Â labeledÂ casper-rw use the following boot parameters in your /syslinux/syslinux.cfgÂ on the first partition (all in one line): append noprompt floppy=off cdrom-detect/try-usb=true boot=casper persistent locale=en_US.UTF-8 file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed initrd=/casper/initrd.gz live-media-path=/casper/ quiet splash ignore_uuid — Â This does not iron out the problem …
if you need a progress indicator while using dd you will find this interesting.
sudo dd if=/dev/zero bs=2048 | pv -s 8G | sudo dd bs=2048 of=/dev/null
just give “pv” the size of the input device (image) and pipe dd through.
this post is just a note to myself (like many others on this blog)
ls -t /dev/sd* | head -1 | /bin/sed -e 's/^\/dev\/*//' |cut -c 1-3
i had to figure out a way to determine the name of the usb-thumb-drive i JUST connected within a script – well.. it works but im open for suggestions 🙂
first i list all devices that begin with “sd” sorted by creation time/dateÂ
then i filter the newest device and cut off Â the string “/dev/”
at last i cut the first 3 letters of the string because that’s all i need (i do not need to know the partition number of the device)
Â Um dieses PPA hinzuzufÃ¼gen Ã¶ffnet man entweder einen Terminal (Konsole) und kopiert folgende Zeilen…

After the upgrade of the n9 meego harmattan software to pr1.1, i ran into a problem with my accounts.
autoconnection didn’t work anymore, i had to do it manually and even then i had to try it twice till it worked.
